Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 19:2

_ _ set — stir up. Gesenius translates, “arm.”

_ _ Egyptians against the Egyptians — Lower against Upper: and Saitic against both. (See Isaiah 3:10). Newton refers it to the civil wars between Apries and Amasis at the time of Nebuchadnezzar’s invasion; also between Tachos, Nectanebus, and the Mendesians, just before Ochus subdued Egypt.

_ _ kingdom against kingdom — The Septuagint has “nome against nome”; Egypt was divided into forty-two nomes or districts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 19:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 19:2

I will set — Egypt was now one kingdom, but not many years after this time it was divided into twelve kingdoms, between whom there were many and cruel wars.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 19:2

And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall (c) fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, [and] kingdom against kingdom.

(c) As he caused the Ammonites, Moabites and Idumeans to kill one another, when they came to destroy the Church of God, (2 Chronicles 20:22; Isaiah 49:26).
